WOMEN OF AUSTRALIAN DISTILLING
In Australia, the under representation of women
in industries like distilling considered to be ‘male-dominated’, continues to affect gender equality and industry performance.
In a 2021 study of the Australian spirits industry conducted for Spirits & Cocktails Australia, Deloitte Access Economics found that women make up 48% of the workforce across manufacturing, wholesaling, retailing and hospitality. This stems from a higher share of female workers in hospitality (52%) as women make up just 36% of employees in spirits retailing, and approximately 10% of roles in distilling.
